Dashboards

You can create dashboard panels to display information you are collecting with PostHog. It will be the first thing you see when you log on so that you can easily access the most important performance metrics in your product.

Dashboard panels can be created in two ways:

  • From Action trends
  • From Funnels

This will give you the option to display information in tables, line charts or funnels .

Creating an Action Trend Dashboard

Go to ‘Actions’>’Trends’ in the left-hand navigation:
